According to Fiji Voice, No. 6, August 1988, the official ALP Delegation to Fiji in May  completed a report soon after their return on May 22. It became the basis of a policy motion on the reassessment of Australian aid commitments to Fiji. (p. 11) Your copy of the report is accompanied by a report that, in the eyes of the Fijian government, the visit of the delegation was a private one.
A careful reading of the report sent to the IRBDC, including its organization, wording, and final recommendations, and in light of the fact that it was prepared within a short time after the completion of the visit, would lead one to conclude that it is the final report of the ALP Delegation. The IRBDC would, however, be willing to write to Australia and request a copy should it be thought necessary.
